Is Master Shots on LFI Gallery a closed country club?

In February 2019, one person got 50 photos chosen by LFI Gallery and February is not yet ending... 50 master shots, wow... 

It sounds like some camera clubs that I know. Why bother with nonsense like this? There are plenty of other possible outlets for your photography.

I am also wondering if its very biased group. I have seen photos classified as master shots that were IMO garbage. An example was a white wall with a blue pain dot on the wall...........really. It was a photo of someones white wall with a blue dot of paint or marker. I have submitted photos for master shot and received no interest and yet the same photo gets hundreds of likes on social media. About 3 months ago I purged my entire gallery so at least they cant use my work for gain.

I think I have worked out why I cant get any master shots or selections when submitting to LFI. I don't subscribe anymore......do we have to pay to be considered?

That could be a plausible explanation.

I believe that may be the case.

Exactly. I am under the impression that if I submit an amazing photo that is Master Shot material,  unless I am paying for their subscription service ( though already having a login ) it will  not be chosen. I have noticed none of my work getting chosen since I stopped paying them for the subscription and just buying LFI mag at local Leica store.

Now, that’s very interesting with regards to this topic and discussion, I think.

I've had 3 Master Shots and 13 selections in other categories approved so far, and I've never been a subscriber, so it's not necessary. I haven't uploaded very many photos, because I only choose the ones I think they might be interested in.

I guess it's not enough for an image to be technically perfect, it's more important that it has “something extra” - something funny, surprising, or something that otherwise catches the viewer's attention. 

It's not always easy for oneself to see what this “extra” might be.
